Who will it be? Clarence Thomas for his work is demonstrating how underpaid Supreme Court justices are and how they must take on extra work (such as being an NFT) to make ends meet?
- Mitt Romney for his statement that Democrats did not stop Republicans from using the debt ceiling as a hostage when they had a chance a couple of years ago?
- Chuck Grassley for demonstrating that maybe he has lost a step or two upstairs by promoting a made up out whole cloth Biden corruption scandal?
- CPAC meeting in Budapest, Hungary (very American) hears fascist leader of Hungary Victor Orban call for extreme right takeover of America?
- Republicans in the Iowa state legislature for taking the first steps to dismantle Iowa’s once highly regarded public school system?
